Labyrinth Watcher (group)

The Pthumerians are a type of enemy in Bloodborne.

Description

As their name implies, Pthumerians are the residents of the ancient land of Pthumeru.

They are humanoid beings, that exhibit a pale greyish color of skin, and a head with a permanent, expressionless face, with their mouths wide open. Additionally, most of the Pthumerians possess tall and thin frames, though retaining great and powerful strength. Their strange, almost "undead-like" appearance stems from being marked by the Eldritch Truth when they came in contact with the Great Ones.

In-game, the player will find that many of the Pthumerians are, in fact, quite powerful, making the bulk of the roster of enemies that can be found within the Chalice Dungeons.

An interesting quirk about most Pthumerians is that a lot of them are in fact weak against Arcane damage.

Notes

  • Most Pthumerians are weak to Arcane, though some are not.
  • A lot of weaker Pthumerian enemies will, in specific Chalice Dungeons, wield poisonous or flaming weapons. Meanwhile, stronger enemies might have flaming weapons and/or a "red buff".

Trivia

  • Some of the enemies cannot be confirmed to be "True" Pthumerians, but though their origins are vague, their anatomy is, quite simply, too Pthumerian to ignore. This is the case for the following:
  • The Graveguard Mask, worn by Dores, features what appears to be a Pthumerian's skinned face.
  • The entirety of Pthumeru is covered with red banners, decorated with extensive flower patterns.
  • The Pthumerians appear to have a specific and consistent dagger design, this design is that of a serpentine blade. Many variants of the Labyrinth Watchers wield one exactly like the one Martyr Logarius uses, albeit much smaller. And Yharnam herself uses a much more intricately designed and decorated dagger.
  • The Pthumerians might be based on the K'n-yan a fictional civilization from "The Mound" - a horror/science fiction novella by American author H. P. Lovecraft. The K'n-yan is a highly advanced telepathic civilization who worshipped the Old Great Ones (Cthulhu, Shub-Niggurath, Nug and Yeb, Ghatanothoa).
    • The people of K'n-yan live underground and also utilize undead slaves, reanimated from the bodies of ancient enemies or inferior members of the ruling class. They attained immortality and subjugated other races before them thanks to their technology and ability to dematerialize and rematerialize at will. The underground people also customarily engage in several forms of sadism, depraved practices, ritualistic orgies and unspeakable horrors such as extended public torture, random body modifications and mutilations of other slave species as entertainment, in order to gratify their time-dulled senses.
